Spirit of the Lights is Glensheen’s enchanting outdoor light display. This outdoor display is FREE and open to the public. Glensheen has been home to Spirit of the Lights since 2018, before then you may have known it as Marcia Hales’ famous Park Point Light Display. 


Due to health and safety precautions, cider and cookies will not be offered this year. Guests are welcome to bring their own food and drink to enjoy on the estate!


Tickets are not needed to attend Spirit of the Lights. Mansion tours are available for purchase in the ticket house.


Dress for the weather! It can be chilly by the Lake. There are fires lit across the estate to stop and warm up at. Spirit of the Lights guests also have access to explore the Carriage House. The Gift Shop is in the Carriage House and is open during Spirit of the Lights, so be sure to stop in!


The display is celebrated for its intimate and natural feel. Many of the motifs and displays are in memory of individuals or in recognition of meaningful moments. To say this is a uniquely special display is an understatement. 2022 marks the fourth year that Spirit of the Lights’ home has been at Glensheen. We can’t thank Marcia enough for choosing Glensheen as the new home for these lights, which have such a storied past.


At this time, Glensheen does not allow pets or emotional support animals on the property. However, we do welcome service dogs!

Please note that only the outdoor light display is free. To experience the magic of an evening candlelight tour at Glensheen click HERE.


A tunnel of white lights stands over a dark pathway, with red and white lights on trees in the distance in the night sky.



Come see why Glensheen Mansion, perched on the shore of Lake Superior, is the most visited historic home in Minnesota.
